Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

Located on the banks of the Tennessee river at the foothills of the Appalachian mountain range, Chattanooga’s nickname of “Scenic City” is certainly well-deserved. Along the river’s waterfront you can find many bars and restaurants. To get a panoramic view of the city, take the Lookout Mountain Incline Railway from the historic St. Elmo District to the top of the mountain. Once there you can visit the National Park Service’s Point Park, where you can learn details about the Battle of Chattanooga which was fought during the Civil War. For those who are afraid of heights there are tons of nearby caverns and cave systems where you can take tours. There is even a 145-foot underground waterfall known as Ruby Falls.

One of the most iconic locations in the city is the Chattanooga Choo Choo Hotel. Located in a railway station that was built at the turn of the 20th century, the hotel has a convention center as well as several restaurants and shops. Guests can even spend the night in a restored passenger railway car that has been converted into a hotel room. There are also a number of museums in the city that highlight the town's past. The International Towing and Recovery Hall of Fame and Museum commemorates the city as the birthplace of the tow truck. The Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum has the largest operating historic railroad in the South, including a fully-functioning historic passenger train teaching people about the history of locomotion. Other notable museums in the city include the Hunter Museum of American Art, the Chattanooga History Center, the National Medal of Honor Museum, the Houston Museum, the Chattanooga African American Museum, and the Creative Discovery Museum.
